A Change In Thinking

Vegetables first.  Pasta second.

I could never go without pasta.  But when I make a pasta dish it’s never without a pile of veggies.  Instead of spaghetti with a side salad, I make veggies the star!

This dish turned out to be a perfect light summer meal!

1

  • Equal parts whole wheat and white spaghetti
  • Pile of green beans equal to spaghetti
  • Heap of tomatoes just about as large
  • 1/4 cup pesto (I used my first jar of freezer pesto)
  • 3/4 cup pasta water
  • Parmesan cheese

Stir fry green beans and tomatoes.  Mix with drained pasta.  Toss with pesto and pasta water.  Top with cheese.
